October 10th, 2008
Version 1.928 is ready for download and includes the following improvements.
- Weapon and equipment loadouts can now be previewed in the pilot manager before entering the game.
- Planetary mining for particular material types was severely limited in certain locations, now equalized properly.
- Fine tuning of click ranges for mouse selection.
- New higher resolution desktop icon.
The server program also has a major update which includes a new automatic CPU utilization system, allowing the program to better adapt to any potential changes in available system resources. The new version monitors and automatically throttles CPU utilization as needed to maintain a certain level of performance for stable/reliable gameplay. The new version also generally decreases the level of CPU utilization significantly. Manual control is still available as an option. Leave line 810 blank in the text2.dat file to use the new automatic CPU system. You can also still manually set it if you want to lock in a value. If you update, make sure to back up your current text2.dat file and copy over lines you want to keep, but remember, line 810 needs to remain blank to use the automatic CPU system.
